Going under the knife for career boost

Posted by Miss B On April - 19 - 2010

A survey conducted by new cosmetic surgery TV channel MyFaceMyBody has shown that two-thirds of women believe that looks are important for getting hired or promoted.

It also revealed nearly three quarter of those surveyed would have non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and that 1 in 10 people would turn to surgery in an effort to boost their career prospects.

Sadly only two per cent said that they wouldn’t improve their appearance to achieve recognition at work!

“It’s interesting in the recession to examine how important people feel their looks are in maintaining or furthering their jobs,” said cosmetic surgeon and former male model Stephen Handisides.

Handisides, who presents the 30 minute show, said: “Having seen both sides of the beauty industry, I know what pressure there is these days to look as good as possible and to defy old father time’s inevitable progress.”
